Oldest Church in the World?

Maybe, or maybe not.  

There are currently several contenders for the title, the most recent of which is a cave underneath St. George's, itself an extremely old church building in the Jordanian city of Rihab  It is described as a circular worship area with stone seats, as well as living quarters with a long tunnel connected to a water-source.

This may or may not be the oldest church in the world, but we know a certain parish on Long Island that almost certainly has the oldest church council in the world.
